Our DNA sequence doesn’t have a key signature. The fibonacci series isn’t in 4/4. So – why should our worship music be limited by such rules?
Our congregations aren’t as dumb as our worship music makes them out to be.
I’m sure God could’ve made these essentials a lot simpler in life – but where would His glory and extravagance in that? It’s as if this whole contemporary worship thing thrives on the upmost simplicity & gets away with it so much that
we’ve stopped challenging ourselves to creative something ornate and beautiful for the King.
What can we do to make our music more ornate – rhythmically – harmonically – instrumentally – to make use of our God given creativity – but remain accessible to our congregations? Let’s move forward.
When the King returns – we should be in the fields workings – not copying and pasting.
